To sidney and back again. Mon, Jan 8, 2007

It was sad to be at Grandma’s funeral, but good to see so many family members. Got to visit with the majority of my eight trillion cousins. We shared some good laughs. The line of the weekend had to be “I’m pretty sure you can’t say that to a kid”.

You know what Steve, I think you’re right.

Had a mighty fine steak at Dude’s Steak House. We managed to take up about half the restaurant. If you’re ever in downtown Sidney - stop by and check it out. Sam enjoyed from Fried macaroni and cheese nibblers. Who would have thought?

Had a few beers and some people played some pool at Goldy’s Bar and Grill. Okay, I have to be honest. I started to write this up thinking about linking to maps of Sidney, but after two google searches and successfully finding websites for both establishments I have to admit I’m impressed. Not sure who is going through Sidney making sure everyone has a web site and that it’s actually findable in Google, but they are doing one hell of a job.

Make that three for three. The funeral was held at St. Patrick’s. I hadn’t attended a service there since I was much younger. The remodeling job they did was amazing. I was quite impressed with the look of the church. Didn’t even remember to pack the camera for this trip. Derned.

So, back to work it is. After a long holiday season, that I can’t say I’m going to miss, it will be good to get back to normal. That is after Sam’s upcoming celebration. Time to monkey around.
